The partnership between Brookshire Brothers, The Coalition and the Drug-Free All-Stars has been longstanding, and we hope, beneficial for Angelina County residents. We believe these stickers serve as a great reminder to our customers to drink responsibly while they celebrate the holiday season,” said Melissa Crager, Public Relations and Corporate Responsibility Manager for Brookshire Brothers.
The Drug-Free All Stars of Angelina County, funded by a grant from TxDOT, recently completed a holiday-themed Project Sticker Shock. The Drug-Free All Stars are a group of high school seniors that serve as role models for the community by living an alcohol, tobacco, and drug-free life. Every year during the holiday season, the number of alcohol-related car accidents and fatalities rises significantly. According to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), every nine hours someone dies from drunk driving in Texas. To combat these statistics, The Coalition and Drug-Free All Stars introduced a holiday-themed Project Sticker Shock focused on reducing drinking and driving.
Thank you to Brookshire Brothers for participating in this year’s holiday-themed Project Sticker Shock.
Since 1988, The Coalition has focused on eliminating the use of harmful substances by affecting public policy, laws, attitudes and behaviors, all in an effort to foster healthy life-long choices for the local community.
